'Anything' related to remote working is a winner for Euro disties, but classic enterprise hardware? That's another story

"shortages in areas such as notebooks will start to feel this pressure"

I don't think it matters all that much. It's funny how nobody is talking about the consequences of notebooks "flying out the doors", namely the fact that, when the confinement is lifted, workers will be going back to their cubicles, hand in their laptops and get back to regular work. All those laptops that have flown out will still be out there, companies are not going to throw them away. They'll keep them as replacements.

Which means that the laptop market is going to tank, and soon. If everyone who needs one has one, then no one will be needing one, so sales are likely going to pancake.

That's what I'm guessing anyway.
